Dr. Jeff Pan gave a seminar at IBM Italy on 19th, September, 2013. His talk is titled:
It noticing so, Optimal and “Good Enough” Approximations for Semantic Reasoning.
Abstract: The talk will illustrate the challenges of reasoning with semantic data, discuss different reasoning strategies, and particularly focus on the approximation techniques. Two approximation technologies, namely the optimal semantic approximation and the “good enough” syntactic approximation, and their applications in the context of the K-Drive project, will be introduced.
Yuan Ren gave a seminar at IBM Italy on 13th September, 2013. His talk is titled: Ontological Representation of Treatment Programs and Deviations.
Abstract: The talk will report the analysis results of the IBM Italy use case in the K-Drive project and its connections to knowledge-based technologies. Particularly, an ontological solution based on semantic query answering has been proposed for the medical treatment program deviation analysis use case. The construction of different knowledge assets in this use case, particularly the development of different queries for detecting deviations, will be illustrated.
Dr. Jeff Z. Pan, Reader at the Department of Computing Science in the University of Aberdeen, is in IBM Italy for his secondment now. He will visit Rome for a week and then the Advanced Center of Research in Trento for another week. During his stay, Dr. Pan will work with researchers in IBM Italy and other secondee from University of Aberdeen on WP3, WP5 and WP6. He will also discuss other collaboration opportunities with IBM Italy.
